i attended my first blogging conference last month in Los Angeles, California. Blogher is “a conference presented by SheKnows Media, and is the world’s largest celebration of women content creators across social media, video, photos, and the web.” (credit: blogher website) blogher ’16 was from august 4-6 and hosted at the L.A. Live Marriott.
i met so many inspirational women who encouraged me to keep blogging and to be my authentic self. there was a wealth of knowledge at every session and the keynote speakers were amazing including sarah michelle gellar, sheryl crow and kim kardashian.
i learned a myriad of information about each woman, but of course my favorite was kim kardashian. she said about 80% her life is publicized. she said that when she was a teenager, she wanted to be on the “real world” with her friend. her friend let her know that she wanted to be the manager but kim could be on the camera. fast forward to 2016 and kim has a reality show and her friend is managing it. that stood out to me because it is important to speak what i want and words can bring life or death.
my favorite session was the snapchat vs. facebook. it was good for me because at the time i had just started my snapchat so it was an introductory course. the session taught me how to monetize the two with creative content and keywords.
overall, the atmosphere of the conference was very refreshing and encouraging. i connected with women from all over the world as well as potential sponsors. i would encourage any woman who is attempting to take her online content to the next level to attend this conference.
